Director Subhash Ghai had designed an desirous fight film with 3 of a biggest Bollywood superstars — Dilip Kumar, Amitabh Bachchan and Shah Rukh Khan — though he had to postpone it. The executive pronounced he had even a pretension for a film, that was to be called Mother Land. “In 2003, we wanted to start a fight film called Mother Land, where we had expel Dilip Kumar, Amitabh Bachchan and Shah Rukh Khan. The book was prepared and 3 songs were also recorded, though during a final notation Shah Rukh corroborated out,” Ghai says in a PTI interview.
The filmmaker, who has formerly worked with Shah Rukh in a 1997 strike film Pardes, pronounced a luminary wanted a solo-hero plan behind afterwards and hence a dream plan could not go on floors. “He (Shah Rukh) felt there are so many characters in a film. He wanted to do a solo favourite film then, though cave was not. It was a story of Dilip saab, Amitabh Bachchan, Shah Rukh. On my wish list were also Aishwarya Rai, Priety Zinta and Mahima Chaudhry for a film though that’s destiny,” he says. Mother Land did not take off though there was another film, called Shikhar, that Ghai had designed to make with Shah Rukh. However, that also got shelved, so giving birth to Pardes.
“Before Pardes, we had designed a film called Shikhar, staring Jackie Shroff and Shah Rukh, where we were to expel a new girl. It was a adore story with a fight backdrop. We had finished a muhurat too and available a strain after signing A R Rahman,” he says.
“‘Ishq bina kya jeena yaaro’ was a strain from Shikhar (which eventually became one of a many renouned songs from his Taal). But when Trimurti (1995) expelled and flopped, a media and distributors pronounced ‘how could we give a wave after 10 hits? You improved retire’!” he says. The proviso put Ghai and his group in confusion, as they motionless to throw a desirous fight film and instead focused on creation a “small film.”
“My group thought, given Shikhar was a really large fight film with outrageous investment, let’s make a tiny bill film. we suspicion let’s make a tiny film, that happened to be Pardes, fire within a year and come behind to Sikhar later,” Ghai says. When Pardes expelled and became a hit, Ghai changed on to helm Taal (1999). The 72-year-old filmmaker recently showcased Pardes during New Excelsior Cinema, acquired by Mukta A2 Cinema, a bend of Ghai’s Mukta Arts.
